More happy (pills)

I upped my dosage of Zoloft (sertraline) yesterday. I started out on 50 mg near the end of February. Yesterday I started taking one and a half of those. So I am now doing 75 mg a day. I'm not sure how long it will take to kick in, but I'm hoping to see some improvement in the next week or two.

My doctor said I could go to 75 and then 100 depending on the side effects, and that 100 mg is the normal adult dosage for people who need it (though some people only need the 50 and that works for them). The 50 mg's really helped with my ocd (obsessive-compulsive disorder), but it hasn't been picking me up very well. It leveled off the highs, but not the lows. So we will see how this goes.
